The Body Shop haul: Chocomania

This post should be simply titled "Yum!!"


Hi I'm Vita and I'm a chocoholic.  I literally cannot go more than a day without putting at least one morsel of chocolate into my mouth.  I don't discriminate either and go all the way across the spectrum from 85% cocoa to white chocolate - it's all orgasmic as far as I'm concerned!!!  Okay, so the chocolate goodies I'm posting here aren't edible but they still appeal to some of this particular chocaholic's senses.  I grabbed me a few products from The Body Shop's newly released Chocomania range...

Chocomania Body scrub (200ml/7.75oz)

Look at that dark chocolate splodge in the pan above!  Now to me it looks heavenly, just like chocolate brownie mix.  And the fragrance (you'll have to take my word for it),well, it's just sooo chocolatey which isn't surprising as this scrub contains Community Fair Trade cocoa butter.  Other key ingredients are brazil nut oil, soya oil with organic cane sugar as the exfoliant.

It  looks and smells so convincingly edible there are a couple of cautionary symbols on the base of the tub.  Funnily enough the sales guy told me he still couldn't resist and had to have a taste.  He said it tasted terrible, and you know, I'm happy to trust him on this!

Unfit for consumption/Keep out of reach of children

The scrub is massaged in to dry skin and rinsed off in the shower.  I sampled a little on the back of my hand (below) and after rinsing off the skin on my hand felt smoother and actually a little moisturised.



Chocomania Body lotion (250ml/8.5 fl.oz)

The body lotion has the same delicious scent as the scrub. As with the scrub it contains cocoa butter and brazil nut oil and other key ingredients are shea butter, babassu oil and sesame seed oil.  On first impressions it feels rich enough to be an effective moisturiser but light enough to absorb fairly quickly.  You can see in the picture above it isn't one of those watery body "lotions" that run off the skin and don't do much in terms of moisturising.  Oh yes, it has the same little symbols on the back of the bottle!  

I'm going to enjoy using these two products without the usual chocolate-associated guilt.

Are you a chocoholic like me?

Until next time.

Vita :)

    1. I love wearing perfume every day so I admit I'm going to have to think about which perfume wears best with the chocolate as a base - I'm thinking Angel will be a good match!

    1. I love so many of The Body Shop's body products. I have their Sweet Pea body butter duo and I'm now craving their Vanilla body butter duo because it's another edible scent!
